Ian Black, CCIM, Steve Horn, CCIM, and Melissa Harris of Ian Black Real Estate will serve as leasing agents for the portfolio.
“These Class A suburban office buildings have amenities comparable to those available in downtown offices, like common area conference rooms, gyms and mail rooms, but are closer to the interstate and have much higher parking ratios,” said Harris, Sales Associate at Ian Black Real Estate.
Between the Ibis Group assignment and the Starling Group portfolio, Ian Black Real Estate now handles all significant office leasing – over 500,000 square feet – from Fruitville Road south to Bee Ridge Road.
“In working with the Ian Black team on the initial Cattleridge portfolio earlier in the year, we could tell they really had a great depth of knowledge of the Sarasota market,” said Carrie Kaminski, Chief Financial Officer of the Ibis Group. “We seemed to work really well together and appreciated their professionalism and ability to close deals.”
The Ibis Group took these office assets over from a partnership of Michigan-based Osprey S.A., Ltd. Osprey has been in the process of liquidating its Gulf Coast portfolio.
“We’re looking to freshen the buildings and take a new step out into the market,” Kaminski said.
